New disciplines to be introduced at University of AJK: Masood Khan

MUZAFFARABAD: (Parliament Times) President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan has said that every possible measure will be taken to ensure the students at public sector Universities of AJK are provided with the best possible education and facilities.
He made these remarks during a call on by Prof. Dr. Kaleem Abbasi, Vice Chancellor University of AJK, Muzaffarabad, here at the Presidency.
The President while conversing with the Vice Chancellor reiterated the need ensure that all appointments, promotions and admissions in the University are made according to merit. He said in order to promote competency and come at par with other universities in the region we must uphold merit.
President AJK said that our students will be provided with all necesary academic facilities, including state of the art laboratories and allied equipment. He highlighted the need to promote research-oriented academic activities focusing on encouraging innovation.
While emphasising the need to introduce new disciplines at the University, the President asked the VC to take the requisite steps for initiating classes for Mass Communication, International Relations (IR) and Tourism. Azad Kashmir, he said, has massive potential for tourism and concrete measures have to be taken to establish tourism as a full-fledged industry and help generate essential revenue for AJK. He said that a comprehensive understanding of the Kashmir issue in the context of international affairs is only possible if IR degree courses are introduced.
Updating the President on the construction of the main King Abdullah Campus of the University of AJK, the Vice Chancellor assured the President that under the supervision of the Turkish contractors, work on the project is rapidly on its way towards timely completion.
The President also advised the Vice Chancellor to reach out to the Planning Commission for facilitating and funding the construction of academic and administrative blocks at Neelum sub-campus. He urged the need for making the Neelum sub-campus fully functional and ready for the coming academic intakes.
